Again like i said... we've paid £75k for a P/t, non league defender who's barely kicked a ball so far.... Shanks scores goals for fun and is a capped U21, May has full Scotland caps i believe.... so whose living the fantasy?

You really need to change that tune I now know the words off by heart.

Had a look at Liam Polworth's stats last night.

Had the most assists in the championship last season (15) and scored 5 goals. One against us.

23 years old and prefers central midfield, although he was played out right last season, which he wasn't that keen on.

Looks like he would add to our squad in a positive way.

Get him signed.

All these central midfielders. It almost has me nostalgic for the Gus days....

To be fair though, this deal will likely be one in one out in terms of centre mids.

Aye, it was tongue in cheek. Polworth looks a good player, so would be happy if this one materialises.

I still have a lot of time for McShane, and if he does leave, he goes with my best wishes.

Agreed. I too like McShane but he's always going to find fist team opportunities hard to come by this season. Especially since you can argue that the middle of the park is our strongest area. 

Think Polworth would bring something slightly different too. As FTOF pointed out, his assists total last season was ridiculous for a club who struggled for large parts of the season.

Interestingly, McShane's assist total for us in the season before last was pretty impressive whilst in a not dissimilar position.  I agree, though, that he is likely to be a squad player and not competing for a starting 11 place, so probably best if he moves on now.

From what I am reading, there has been nothing to firm up the Polworth story, so I won't be holding my breath on that one.  A few too many false dawns this summer suggest that caution is best applied.

Darren Lyon mutually terminated his contract with Hamilton the other day. He can play right back and if Paul McGinn gets injured nobody is there to replace him. Could do a job as a back up for both McGinn brothers as he can play centre midfielder aswell
